Our brand-new centre is designed to stimulate children’s creativity, exploration and sense of belonging.

Explorers Early Learning Armadale are offering additional place

Our children are given the opportunity to play outdoors in large yards designated to each age group. We also have a community garden and chickens that all children have the opportunity to engage with. 

Our centre is located on the grounds of Armadale House, which has a significant history. In 1876, James Munro built Armadale House as his private residence. Munro was a prominent business man and later became the Premier of Victoria during the land boom of the 1880’s.  Armadale House was named after Munro’s Scottish birthplace.  The suburb Armadale was later named after Armadale House.
